This is a fantastic result for tennis.

It's not so much that Serena's out, it's more that she doesn't effortlessly win another slam and now we're very likely to have a new slam winner.

If Aga wins this tournament. Or Kvitova who has been playing like shit yet no one has been able to take advantage.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Serena just played very conservative off the ground as she has done a lot this year. Like the Kuznetsova match in RG or Vika at Doha, it just takes someone willing to step in at every opportunity and put her on the back foot to have a chance.

On top of that, Lisicki played very well and Serena made some poor mistakes at net.

Lisicki v. Kanepi is absolutely what the commentators would call a mouthwatering match.

Yeah, it is kinda refreshing result comparing to the situation when the people mainly speculated who might play against Serena in the final. Somebody outside top 10 could be a good slam winner, and I woudn't mind if Sabine Lisicki would win the whole thing...

If you want someone to win in terms of it being good for tennis then the obvious answer is Stephens, that seemingly wouldn't be very popular judging from twitter though.

Vika's fall and her sobs cursed this tournament...most of the stars are gone.

I think Li Na will win now. I think she is the best player that is still in the tournament.

Anything can happen though, but i would be suprised if someone like Sabine or Kanepi keep the same level all the matches. And the other players have not impressed so far (imo).

I think I'll stick with the opinion that Kvitova fans are the most deluded of any on TF.

I think i agree. She goes out early too often. She could actually win this now (Similar players left in the draw to Dubai) but i don't think i hope for that because then the "deluded" part will go on forever regardless what happens in the next 50 tournaments.

She does have a high max level though, i give them that. But very rarely reach that for a full match.

Mac is only around when Kvitova isn't flopping all the time.
